A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is a simple radiological technique that is used to undertake a tubal evaluation by assessing the shape and size of the uterine cavity and the patency of the fallopian tubes. It begins with the infusion of an opaque dye into the cervical canal via an instrument. This dye eventually permeates into the uterus and the fallopian tubes, accentuating blockages in the fallopian tubes by staying concentrated in a specific region. The procedure is usually undertaken in the window between the sixth and tenth day of the menstrual cycle.
What Is a Hysterosalpingogram?
Why Choose a Hysterosalpingogram?
A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is commonly performed to examine women for whom natural conception is proving to be a challenge.
Patency of Fallopian Tubes
Through an HSG, your doctor can view the structure of your uterus, and also explore the patency of your fallopian tubes. If there is any tubal obstruction or uterine scarring, your fertility consultant will design a suitable treatment solution for you, to augment your chances of conceiving a baby.
If you have experienced repeated miscarriages, it is possible that they have been caused by inherent or acquired inconsistencies of the uterus. An HSG can help in ascertaining the presence of tumours, adhesions and fibroids, which are all hindrances to fertility.
Is a Hysterosalpingogram Right for Me?
If you have been experiencing difficulty conceiving, it is possible that your body may be telling you something. For some women, infertility is caused by a tubal blockage, meaning that a fresh egg can never make its way down the fallopian tube. Thus, the egg stops short of reaching the uterus, ending its chances of meeting a potential sperm. A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) can determine whether a tubal blockage exists, and if so, how you can overcome it.
What Are the Steps of a Hysterosalpingogram?
A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is a smooth and short procedure that usually lasts no longer than half an hour.
What Are the Risks of a Hysterosalpingogram?
A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) procedure presents minor risks, although the merits of the routine outbalance the drawbacks.
Exposure to Radiation
There are theories that prolonged periods of radiation can act as a catalyst for cancer. However, on Cloudnine, our HSG routines are gentle and measured, allowing for a diagnosis while keeping the risk of radiation at bay.
Exacerbation of Infections
If you have previously been diagnosed with a pelvic inflammatory disorder or a sexually transmitted disease, an HSG could exacerbate your condition. Be sure to detail your medical history to your fertility specialist, so that a customised treatment plan can be drawn out for you.
They say, ‘Never lose Hope’
Dr. Manju Nair was my doctor here at Cloudnine. I have a 9-year-old daughter but could not conceive for the 2nd time. After coming to Cloudnine not only were my spirits uplifted but my hope of conceiving after these many years turned into reality 🙂
Positivity spread across to enlighten our hearts
It was a good experience at Cloudnine. Dr. Uma is one of the best doctors in the city. She was very understanding of our situation and gave us a consultation in a very calm manner with much clarity. The atmosphere in Cloudnine is very positive and welcoming.
The touch of genuine care
The doctor assigned to us showed genuine care towards us and provided the best opinion, Dr. Uma explained all the processes involved with complete compassion. The environment was very comfortable. We give credit to cloudnine for this impressive treatment.
A great experience in making
The staff was immensely supportive, right from the support-desk staff, the nurses, to the doctors. I was guided and helped wholeheartedly. The entire team equally contributed to this great experience. I thank you all for it.
Dr. Manju Nair Has a Divine Persona
I don’t have enough words to describe Dr. Manju Nair’s qualities adequately. She is simply the best. She is confident, caring, friendly, positive and has some kind of magic in her hands. Among all the fertility specialists we met, she shone through with her divine persona. Dr. Nair’s vibrant personality made us feel comfortable and I thank her and her team for the wonderful care they took at every step of our treatment. Hats off to them all!

This past year has been a wonderful journey for us. Dr. Manju Nair has helped us navigate highs and lows, and is the most honest and friendly doctor we have ever met. ‘Thank you’ doesn’t quite encapsulate the gratitude we have for her, and we are indebted to her for all she has done for us.
Coming to Cloudnine Fertility, Old Airport Road Was the Best Decision of My Life
I think I made the best decision of my life by coming to Cloudnine Fertility, Old Airport Road and meeting Dr. Manju Nair. She listened to my concerns with immense patience and calmed my fears about the scans I would have to undergo on my way to conception. A big thanks to her for tolerating the fuss and frenzy I inevitably made during each scan. Dr. Nair proposed a wonderful fertility treatment, due to which, I have now conceived twins. My husband, my family and I are grateful to her, and I would recommend any couple struggling to conceive, to meet her. Also, a big thanks to the support staff for being so considerate and taking such good care of me!
